First still of Lynn Xiong and Van Ness Wu in Material Queen

Producer Chen Yu-Shan’s upcoming drama, “Material Queen”, was filming on location in Paris regardless of the recent bomb threats.

Early in the morning in the cool temperature of 10 degrees Celsius, Lynn Xiong wore a custom designed dress by Sex In The City stylist Patricia Field; She showed off her shoulders and long legs while walking on the Pont des Arts. Costar Van Ness Wu kept Lynn entertained by making silly poses for other tourists to snap pictures. The actress was full of smiles and laughter despite shivering under the cold weather.

The drama crew had prepared some hot packs for Lynn to put inside her dress, but she said, “I’m afraid it will make me look chubbier. It’s okay to shiver a bit, I have to look pretty even if it’s cold.”

Van Ness did not forget to update his micro blog. He wrote, “So tired! It’s already difficult to read the script in Chinese, and now there are French dialogues…so stressed. On top of the time difference, I haven’t been able to sleep for 48 hours. (I) guess I can only joke around to decrease my stress.”

Sad seeing the insomniac leads; darn those dreadful dark circles! Romantic scenery, dreamy clothes and accessories, attractive actors, yet less lively faces.

Lynn Xiong gets taken to the police station with Van Ness Wu on her birthday

Lynn Xiong celebrated her 30th birthday last weekend on the set of Material Queen in Paris. She and costar Van Ness Wu were filming a breakup scene inside a police vehicle on the 9th. A local policeman played by an extra drove them to the front of a police station and told them to get out. Lynn Xiong was then greeted by over 50 people singing Happy Birthday to her. She was moved to tears and said, “I thought no one knows my birthday. You all love to act. I lost!”

Van Ness Wu gave her a dozen of white roses which he bought on the way to filming. He said he and Lynn Xiong passed by a flower shop several days ago. They both happened to like French white roses, so he especially bought them for her birthday. He “wished Lynn to be loved like a queen forever!” The crowd wanted them to kiss, but he excused himself saying it will be shown in the drama. In the end, the two celebrated by holding hands instead.

Lynn Xiong was asked if boyfriend Aaron Kwok has given her any birthday gifts, to which she answered, “Secret!” According to reports, he already held a birthday party for her before she left for Paris. The two were photograph together with friends at a hot pot restaurant in Hong Kong. Whether it is Aaron Kwok or the crew from Material Queen, Lynn Xiong is sure to have one very happy birthday.

Van Ness thanks God for no bed scene in "Material Queen"

As reported previously, Van Ness Wu and Lynn Xiong were filming in Paris for their upcoming drama, “Material Queen”. Van Ness has been trying his best to avoid intimate scenes due to his Christianity, but he and Lynn had a bed scene in the drama. Fortunately, due to the cold weather in Paris, the bed scene was cancelled and changed to a kissing scene instead. Feeling relieved, Van Ness expressed, “Thank God!”

Van Ness broke up with his now ex-girlfriend Arissa just before he left Taiwan for Paris. He revealed to the media that he has already recovered from it, “Regardless of love relationships or work, God is the one giving me strength and power. Whether it’s good or bad, I have to face them all.” There were rumors that the couple broke up because Arissa had a new love interest and/or because of a dissatisfying sex life. Van Ness continued to thank God and did not disclose any further details of the break up to the media.

It’s Van Ness first time working with Lynn Xiong and he complimented her, saying that she’s very cute, “She’s completely different from her appearance. She’s like a kid, very easy to get along with.” Since Lynn is 179cm tall, whenever the two have to be filmed standing together, Lynn would take off her high heels right away. Van Ness laughed, “The director wanted me to stand on a box, but I refused.”

Golden Bell is airing on Friday, but Van Ness won’t be attending as he will be performing in Singapore. He didn’t forget to congratulate his good friend and director Chen Hui-Ling and Jian Man-Shu for their Best Director and Best Actress nominations for “Year of the Rain” respectively, “Hurry and go get your awards! You guys have to win!”

NTV’s first idol drama “Material Queen” will be premiering in June on CTS (free-to-air network). NTV will broadcast reruns on the following day. A press conference took place on the 11th; Lynn Xiong and Daniel Chan appeared to promote the upcoming drama, while lead actor Van Ness Wu was absent from the event. Van Ness’s manager explained, “He is at the recording studio and can’t make it due to time constraints. We have already arranged time for the next promotional event.”

Previously, Lynn, who is 179 cm tall, wore her heels at the preview release event, making Van Ness look short. Daniel was in luck as Lynn wore flats this time. He exclaimed, “I’m truly very lucky!” Lynn explained, “Some clothes have to be worn with high heels in order to look good. But this wedding dress I’m wearing today is too short, so that’s why I’m wearing flats.”

Material Queen


If, as a gold digger, you can obtain a good catch and do not have to worry about food and clothes, what's wrong with that value? It is mocked as prostitution due to poverty. However since ancient times, people have worshipped money. What's wrong with that?

She even cancelled a date with rich man with a family property of over $50 billion. She discovers that Jia Hao is, in fact, just a poor vegetables vendor at a traditional market.
